The National Front party leader said Thursday’s historic EU referendum was a clear indication the the 28-nation bloc was “decaying”, as she vowed to give her own countrymen the choice should she elected to the Elysee Palace.
She said: “I would vote for Brexit, even if I think that France has a thousand more reasons to leave than the UK.
“Because we have the euro and Schengen. Whatever the result, it shows the EU is decaying, that there are cracks everywhere.”
Her vow is likely to heighten fears a Brexit could lead to the entire break-up of Europe.
